Meghan Markle Shares Throwback Pic from 2014 USO Tour for Remembrance Day and Veterans Day
Duchess Meghan was one of the people who commemorated Remembrance Day in the UK and Veteran’s Day in the US on Monday. She observed the special days by sharing a photo from before she became a Royal.
The throwback image, shared on her Sussex Royal Instagram, featured the Duchess in 2014 on Veteran’s Day. At the time she was on a USO tour visiting Spain, Italy, Turkey, Afghanistan, and the UK.
The post revealed that Meghan met up with service personnel and their families. She captioned the post noting that the day was “to honour those who have bravely served in the Armed Forces.”
The Royal also added:
“Thank you to all, for your service, sacrifice and commitment. It has been an important week to recognise those who serve (and have served) as well as to acknowledge their families.”
On Sunday, the Duchess joined other Royal family members at a Remembrance Day ceremony. Those who lost their lives in World War I were honored.
The ceremony was attended by her husband Prince Harry, his brother Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate, and Prince Andrew, the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, to name a few. The event was held at the Cenotaph war memorial in London.
Charles, William, and Harry stood by the cenotaph to lay wreaths at the foot of the memorial.
On Saturday, Meghan and Harry attended the Festival of Remembrance Service at Royal Albert Hall. This was their first public outing with William and Kate since July.

Meghan and her husband are set to wrap up their official duties for the year soon. The couple is then expected to take a six-week break.
During that time, they will visit with family members. The couple will be at their home in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and the US.
Their trip to the Duchess’ home country will reportedly be an opportunity to take baby Archie to spend Thanksgiving with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland.
Someone who is a big fan of the Duchess is Hillary Clinton. On Tuesday morning, the politician appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live where she spoke to Emma Barnett.
The former First Lady of the US noted how Meghan had “absolutely” faced a racially fuelled backlash after her relationship with Harry came to light in 2016.
Clinton shared some words of advice for the Royal saying:
“I want to tell her to hang in there, don't let those bad guys get you down. Keep going, do what you think is right.”
